My son is very happy learning guitar from francis. He is always looking forward for his class. Francis is a very talented,dedicated,very very punctual loving,caring teacher and a great motivator. He takes personal interest in training his students for exams. He is passionate about music and teaches passionately as well. Has received award from Rickey Khej for best acoustics in guitar. Highly recommended Teacher.

Eve

His classes are really well-structured. I know nothing about music, but from the zero point, he helped me building a solid foundation step by step. In practical part, he taught me playing skills and music knowledge, and in concept part, he taught me styles of strumming and which chords sound happy or sad. No matter what questions I asked, he always can lead me to see a bigger picture (which means he really knows guitar). Also, he gave feedback of my practicing, and pointed out which part I did good, and which part I need to practice more. If I dont understand some part of his lecturing, he will try another way to explain to me until I really understand. His requirements for practicing is very precise and that's very important for beginners. He didnt give me a fancy idea that once you finish the 10 classes, you can play whatever songs you want. Instead, he gave me a realistic idea that it take years to mater guitar, which pushed me to see this matter more serious. Without a correct start and continuous practice, it's very easy to stop in the middle, but when I see some progress in every class, the rewarding feeling motivates me to keep practice.

He is what i call a teacher and truly motivates you to find your style, tries to understand what kind of genre you are into if you are passionate about music and teach accordingly without any pressure.

Francis sir is more of a friend to me. He was the perfect answer to the motivational part I was looking for my long due guitar learning. I also found him via internet after looking over a lot of sites and suggestions. In the past few months, I have been attending his classes and I believe that I have improved myself. He teaches the way how you like music and guides you through it step by step. I would definitely recommend him. :)

Harish Sidhartha

Francis sir is an amazing teacher and a great motivator with lot of patience. He is the best teacher my daughter could ever get. My daughter is 10 years old and plays guitar amazingly (Both classical and acoustic guitar); only because of the online guitar training under Francis Sir. Francis Sir adopts unique teaching techniques suitable for online training and never felt any issues in online training. Thank you so much Sir for being my daughter’s teacher.

Payeli Ghosh

Francis is a very thorough and disciplined teacher. He connects with his students really well. He works magic with them. He understands the individual strengths and designs and fine tunes the overall plan and each session to suit the same. My son Dhruv loves his classes and looks forward to meet Francis (sir). Feel proud to see Dhruv playing effortlessly already. Also, I am looking forward to have Dhruv do the “Trinity College London Plectrum Guitar Grade Exams” and Francis is one of the very few qualified teachers in Bangalore to help and guide him with the course/syllabus. For some serious guitar learning (yet in a fun and interesting way), I sincerely feel that Francis is one of the best teachers in Bangalore. As a mother, I feel Dhruv is in safe hands.

Our daughter Kyra thoroughly enjoys attending Francis' classes, as he makes it interesting and fun. He makes sure the student is involved and interested in the class, and are motivated to practice at home as well. We are very happy with the progress our daughter has made in learning the guitar, and highly recommend his classes to anybody who is keen to learn as well.

"Francis is very energetic and passionate about guitar and teaching guitar to people. He is very organized and systematic in his teaching. His style of teaching enables students to learn and get to know a wide variety of guitar aspects very quickly. He tailors exercises based on what you like to play and builds the course based on your goals. I can already notice a significant improvement in my playing. I've been going to him for several months now and I must say I'm very happy with how everything is going and I would highly recommend Francis for his guitar teaching skills!"

Shyaam Nagarajan

I was introduced to Francis Sir by a friend and in my first meeting I realised that I could improve my skills with him. Though I could play the guitar even before attending his classes (very limited knowledge) since my first class with him in June I can feel there has been a tremendous improvement in my guitar playing skills. Right from holding the guitar, the pick, strumming and playing chords, he guided me in the right direction but also ensuring that it doesn't disturb the style that I was already used to previously. He takes interest in ensuring that the students' interests are taken into consideration while imparting lessons and from his classes it is evident that he follows no strict methods to teach but is open to suggestions and adopts a unique approach with each students taking into account their strengths and weaknesses. His knowledge in music (all kinds) is a huge plus. He also engages in friendly banters but is rightly strict when there is a lax on our part when it comes to attendance or practice.

Johnson

Hi, I am Johnson (47 years old), writing this review on behalf of my children, Jeffery (17 years) and Edwin (12 years) both are learning guitar under Mr. Francis. I had been searching for a music school in Bangalore where my children can found the same or more amount of passion for music as I feel, and I feel that I found what I had been looking for…. No matter what your age is, what profession you are from, you can easily blend in and learn music from scratch….so much attention is given to every student to help them grow, in knowledge and in confidence. Mr. Francis gives individual attention on each and every student. Within short period, my children improved a lot, my children learned basic of music theory, Mr. Francis helped a lot to understand western music styles of notes to play guitar. I would recommend to Francis’ guitar class to people who wants to learn guitar in western classic style. Mr. Francis having strong background in music (Guitar) and hence is very much capable of imparting the required knowledge to aspiring learners like my children. There is enough encouragement given to both my children to help them realize their true potential. My children are enjoying the classes very much, we are feeling lucky to be the part of Francis’ Guitar Class.

Francis Sir a great teacher. He has all the characteristics that i look for in a teacher. He is warm, accessible and enthusiastic and sets high expectations for his students. I have tried my hand at learning guitar at multiple stages and stopped partly due to my laziness & partly due to lack of good teacher. He is extremely patient with each students and has the ability to shift gears. He gauges his students and creates customised material for each students based on their pace & ability. For example, on the first meeting, i played a small piece from stairway to heaven that i had learned from an online tab source. He listened to it intently and corrected me 7 classes later (when i was ready) explaining the right way to play that piece with minimum hand movements. What i like the most about him is his own love for learning, and his discipline. He is more than willing to share with us his work ethic to demonstrate what you we achieve by constantly motivating us. After i met him, I made a good friend too.

Anything about guitar, music, musicians, bands, songs, theory you name it and you will get loaded with information from Francis Sir. Not just playing, there are some cool sessions like ear training and exercises which will turn you into a decent player in a short span of time, Specially for professionals who get less time to practice, gets training materials which covers all the guitar essentials in just an hour of practice. Classes and syllabus are designed based on the individuals requirements, whats else you need???Guitars of all kinds are available in the class electric, acoustic, base, and theory materials which I believe are rare. I would recommend Francis Sirs class to music lovers of all ages, just join and get ready of an adventurous musical journey. -Rejeesh

His profound knowledge and understanding of harmony offered his pupils an early sense of the syntax of music, but he never pushed us to ‘study’ it. Rather, by mentioning for example the beauty of a sixth chord or a deceiving cadence, he made us susceptible to details and harmonic color. The music in itself was always more important than the instrument involved – something that was most obvious in the fingering he provided for us. He also often referred to other instruments and instrumentalists being a writer, a philosopher and composer, he inspired his students in many aspects of music and life. , influenced his style very strongly and created a ‘Zen’-like atmosphere in the classroom.
